The BYU golf team struggled to finish strong, completing the Husky Invitational tournament in 11th place yet improving overall from their last tournament.

The Cougars ended the match 47-over par on a seemingly unforgiving course with winds up to 20-30 mph. Head coach Bruce Brockbank was overall satisfied with the outcome and score of their first two rounds of play.

The second day of play showed more improvement from the Cougars. CJ Lee was able to sustain his spot in the top-25 finishing with a score of 9-over par and tied for 21st. Spencer Dunaway had a score of even par for round three of the tournament as opposed to a score of 14-over par for round one and two.

Patrick Fishburn was playing well for most of the day. He was in the top 10 with a score of two-under par. By the end of the day he had dropped down to 12-over par and tied for 34th in the tournament.

The Cougars improved overall from their last tournament where they scored 51-over par and finished 14th. Regardless of their struggles, they have to be encouraged by their more positive play in the Husky Invitational.

The BYU golf team returns home next week for the Cougar Day tournament on Sept. 28.
